DNS queries through SOCKS5 or HTTP proxy

Our proxy application now supports proxying DOH (DNS over HTTPS) requests through a HTTP or SOCKS5 proxy.

Happy to announce that we just pushed an update which allows you to proxy the http communication with our servers using proxies, both HTTP and SOCKS5. This change is addressed to combat firewalls that attempt to block communication to and from our servers by blacklisting our addresses.

The configuration is simple. We added an extra flag to our console application -proxy-address and you can use it with a full proxy address which supports authentication as well:

  • socks5://host:port
  • socks5://username:password@host:port
  • http://host:port
  • http://username:password@host:port

As expected, using a proxy adds latency to the responses.
